This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: 1010 UTG with over pair facing check/raise. within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I had over pair on the flop so I bet out 3/4 pot because of the draw then got re-raised. Is it okay to stack
I usually call in this spot. Your opponent is representing big draws, sets, two pair, and other over pairs. If you had a read that villain was loose, you could call and shove most non-8, non-diamond turns. But semi-bluffs are the only hands you beat, so if the stack size is the only read we have, folding is fine.

Yeah I think you can either call or fold this, depending on how many draws you put in his check raise range.
At 2NL, which is what I play on PS, I don't think the player pool in general plays draws very agressively. There definitely are some aggro fish though, and I can't think of too many hands we could be behind on that flop, JJ through AA obviously 3 bets us pre flop, and there are no overcards and no likely 2 pair. He could be overvaluing A9 or something, hard to say.
In the end folding is low risk, I think it's always better to take the low variance play and just keep grinding.
